    My kitchen project has the sink located to the left of the dishwasher. I want to have a single drawer pullout for my garbage and recycling cans. Also underneath the sink will be garbage disposal and instant hot water. I'm thinking most efficient location for the garbage drawer would be on the right next to the dishwasher. The sink cabinet width is 36" which necessitates having an off center drain to allow room for the garbage cans to fully retract into the cabinet.

    I'm having a great difficulty finding many options for the off center LEFT drain sink. I've found Julien and Blanco carry minimal selections.

    Who else might fabricate off center sinks?

    I'll start off with stainless steel but am also trying to evaluate granite sinks. Would welcome any comments regarding the use of this type of material for a kitchen sink.

    Elkay or one of its subsidaries. Franke too.

    I don't know about the sink, but keep in mind if you are installing a deeper sink or a garbage disposal that you didn't have before you drains will need to be changed.

    Unless you have a specific product link I was unable to find a sink from either vendor matching my needs of a left located drain in a single sink.

    Elkay EGUH2816 is one, but once you start getting into special designs, the price escalates rapidly. There are others but they either have the drain on the left side, or they cost in the $2,500.00 - $3,500.00 range.
